Welcome to our message boards. We're glad you joined us.
If you've yet to do so, we urge you to have a health care provider evaluate the symptoms you're noticing. Genital and anal warts are most often diagnosed clinically with a visual inspection.
General practitioners are usually fine to diagnose and treat warts, and those preferring specialists sometimes choose urologists or dermatologists. Many public STI clinics are excellent resources, too. Referrals to free or low-cost clinics may be obtained by sending your ZIP code to firstname.lastname@example.org
; please note this email service is only able to provide referrals.
Treatment options for warts vary, ranging from topically applied creams/chemicals to out-patient surgical procedures. Read more on the various options at http://www.ashastd.org/hpv/hpv_learn_warts.cfm#7
, many of which apply to anal warts too.
If you do have anogenital warts then it's also a good idea for your partner to consider being checked, as sometimes warts can be small and hard to see.
I hope this helps but if other questions come up, just let us know.
All the best,
